Pet Travel

Travelling with your pets

Requirements for travel to Europe have now been altered and the Animal Health Certificate has replaced the Pet Travel Passport scheme.
This certification is more complex and requires the following steps:

  • Up to date rabies vaccination.
  • Clinical examination and certification by vet a maximum of 10 days before
  • Microchip checked and verified.

 Please note that we only provide AHC services to existing clients who are already registered with us. If you are registered with another vets, please contact them to discuss what their provision is. There are also a number of practices near the main ports who are able to provide appointments for AHCs, often at short notice. For further information on these, please contact our reception team.

Please contact the practice to enquire about making an appointment – we do have limited availability and recommend planning at least 2 months in advance for this. An AHC costs from £180 and we require a non-refundable deposit on booking of £50. You will need to complete a data collection form at the time of booking (download here) so that we are able to prepare the AHC prior to your appointment with the vet.
